Salted Egg Tofu

There has been a major craze in salted egg dishes and some really taste very good and when Knorr launched a smaller pack of their salted egg powder – I figured that I should get a pack to try out some salted egg dishes without the hassle of having to steam them from scratch.  I was tempted to do salted egg chicken but since I had a packet of tau kwa in the fridge. I decided let’s start with tofu.



  • 1 packet of tau kwa
  • Olive oil spray
  • 3 sprigs of curry leaf
  • 30 gm of unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp of salted egg powder
  • 3 chili padi (optional)
  • Minced garlic
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp chicken powder (optional)


  1. Pat dry tofu and cut into cubes – 9 cubes per tofu
  2. Spray olive oil on tofu and air fry to 13 minutes until golden brown
  3. Heat pan and melt butter, stir-fry curry leaves and garlic until aromatic.
  4. Add in the salted egg powder  and stir fry until paste is foamy and aromatic. Season with salt and chicken powder
  5. Add in the fried tofu and coat with sauce before serving

Notes: I airfried the tofu instead of using oil to deep fry for a healthier version.
